This weekend went too fast, for my liking anyway. Saturday Nick gave me a lesson on the acoustic guitar. He was pleased with my progress.. meh!
Tom went to stay at his mate's place, he is like their third son! The girls went and played at the park and made new friends. It always seems to be the way when they walk Bondi, they meet other people with animals. The people they befriended have a greyhound dog. Bondi loved playing with him.
Andrew dug out some of the veggies, processed the beetroot... yummo. Very nice with a salad.. and in sandwiches too. The tomatoes are all ready to be transferred into the ground from the pots they are currently in.
The Sun was shining and beautiful. The grass has grown mental.. and needs yet another mow. I am considering getting in a goat or something!
I made a banana cake, as I do at least once a week, if not twice a week. I do not like to throw out bananas, so I use them in cakes.. which get gobbled up as soon as they are out of the oven. I put some cinnamon in them this time, the kids love them. Sarah made a chocolate cake, that got eaten while it was still warm.
The girls organised their room, after much coaxing. I was not going to do it for them, they are in dependant and I wanted them to learn to do it themselves. So, they did, and they did a very good job of it too.
Question.... who gets static from their vacuum cleaner? Well, I do and it almost kills me. Any clues as to what to do? I wear different types of shoes, then I wear no shoes... and nothing seems to make a difference. Anyway... my hair stands on end making me look like Phyllis Diller on a good day! Haha

Sounds like life is good down under.

Ginnie said...'s 3:20 pm on Oct. 24, Sunday as I write this...but your blog is dated for Monday the 25th. It amazes me that we can be so far apart and yet communicate so quickly...even in different time zones!! Isn't that great and what do you mean by "processing the beetroot"? Obviously I am not a great cook but it sounds really interesting.

A goat will eat that grass down to the dirt, unless you move it every day. The goat, not the grass.

Ours even ate the bark off the cedar trees. Of course, you could probably stop at one goat. Unless you're married to a goat hoarder, who thought 11 was just the right number.

You need one of those earth straps that you see hanging from the rear of cars. For a while we were getting zapped here at home. We could even see sparks as we put the key in the door lock. Then it just stopped.

Yep, what Andrew said...trail a strap behind you as you burble away with the hoover ;)
